Tenerife - my - Tenerife
(Saturday, 20 May 2006) Written by hopper
Ok, a little history; I first visited Tenerife in 2004, my family and I were looking for a holiday home as an investment and had looked at Spain, Mallorca and other areas of Europe. Ok, a little history; I first visited Tenerife in 2004, my family and I were looking for a holiday home as an investment and had looked at Spain, Mallorca and other areas of Europe.

After 2 seperate weeks of what seemed like the second Ice age in Mallorca we (the family) decided that winter sun had to be a priority and via the internet looked at the possibility of purchasing a property in Tenerife.

Tenerife had always been seen as 'out of our price range' due to the fact that it had an all year round season although we had never looked into this theory.

The late Autumn and early winter weather in Mallorca forced us to look at countries we had not considered previously. A few days of surfing the many estate agents advertising on the internet dispelled this price myth and we were happy to see that we would infact have some change from our euro's as well as a holiday home we could use all year round.

So it was that in December 2004 I found myself (with my Brother in Law) on a weekend trip to look at a property my Father had seen earlier. We both like what we saw and that was when the inital seeds of our love affair with Tenerife were sown.
